Electrical steel is an alloy which contains iron and silicon. Grain oriented electrical steel is an iron-silicon magnetic alloy, which is used to construct the cores of highly-efficient electric transformers owing to its unique magnetic property. It consists of tiny regions, called magnetic domains, which have the same unstructured magnetization direction. The boundary between two domains is known as domain wall. It is available in many grades such as M-2, M-3, M-4, M-5 and M-6, with superior magnetic properties in the rolling direction. It is used in large generators and other apparatus when design permits the directional magnetic characteristics to be used efficiently. It is usually has a silicon level of 3%. It is usually applied in rectifiers, transformers, and so on.
